A special mailbox will be set up inside the Parks & Recreation office, 1000 W. Country Club Drive, until Dec. 15 for Payson area youngsters to drop off any special requests they might have for jolly old St. Nick. All letters dropped off by the 15th will be sent directly to the North Pole. Be sure to include a return address so Santa can reply with a personalized letter.
We're currently accepting late registration for boys and girls fifth- and sixth-grade basketball as space permits. The fee is $25 per child and includes a T-shirt and team pizza party. Games will be held in January and February. Team placement is random. (Registration for 7th- and 8th-grade basketball will be held in January.)
Fishing Pole Loaner Program
Fishing poles and mini tackle boxes are available at the Parks & Recreation office, 1000 W. Country Club Drive. You must be 18 years and older to check out the fishing poles, but anglers of all ages may use them free of charge. The program is sponsored by the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
